although, on this road you can't help catching air if you take it at speed.

So Friday evening was lovely....



Sunday was on the other hand a tad 'dreich' ....

In fact after 20 miles we pulled over to debate if was worth pushing on if it was going to remain damp ..



We decided to change direction and head west to balloch in search of dry roads ....and were rewarded just north of Balloch the roads did indeed dry out ..even though the low cloud cover remained...



At Tarbet, by now the bikes were already filthy from the early wet conditions..

After seeing your photos, I'm going to have to save for a holiday to Scotland. My partner's daughter spent a year in Aberdeen working as a door bitch at one of the nightclubs there and told us that we have to get there and to see the rest of Scotland. Now that I've got my new bike, it's time to start saving the pennies.

Thanks ..I'm flattered if my pics helped in any small part to decide to come to Scotland ....I should be getting paid by the Scottish Tourist Board !

Get saving and we'll see you soon.
